An artist whose focus on music is rivaled only by his focus on mixed media, Takagi Masakatsu was born in Kyoto in 1979. His focus on visual art actually came first; he published a mixed-media magazine named +-79 and began a combined sound/image project named Silicom with Aoki Takamasa (Takagi was responsible for the visuals). After making the rounds of Japanese galleries and clubs, Silicom earned a DVD release in early 2001. Later that year, Takagi released his first album, Pia, a two-disc set including videos and a movie on the second disc. Additional recordings followed for the German label Karaoke Kalk. His solo piano composition "Girls" is featured on a prominent television ad for the Sharp Aquos 64D flat-screen TV. ~ John BushPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
